Sign the National Petition to Protect Funding for the Arts in America

Posted by David Wheeler on January 24, 2017 at 11:00pm 2 Comments

Hello all,

You may have heard that the new Trump Administration and Congress want to end funding for the National Endowment for the Arts. The Congress will swiftly pass their biggest legislative changes in the first 7 to 9 months of the year. We need to act now.

The Arts Action Fund has developed a nationwide petition to help convince President Trump to support the arts by taking specific pro-arts actions within his Administration.

Please click the link to the petition and get 5 of your friends to do the same.

Thank you,

David Wheeler
